PSU is Oregon's urban research university located in the heart of downtown. It is ranked as one of the nation's "Top 10 Up-and-Coming" universities by U.S. News & World Report.
When we are fearless, knowledge has no limits—and neither do our hopes and dreams. We work to be the best, do something bold, make something real. At PSU, you are encouraged to explore your passions and take on real-world challenges. That is one of the many reasons U.S. News & World Report ranks PSU among the nation’s top 10 up and coming universities for the third consecutive year.
More than 2,100 international students choose Portland State University because our urban location creates an environment that emphasizes research, collaborative learning, and sustainability.
